Irene Davies was born on the High Street in Rowley Village in 1895, and in this book she provides an account of her childhood and growing up in this part of the West Midlands. Most of the book is concerned with the 1920's, but the period covered includes from her birth all the way up to (and including) the Second World War.

From the rear side cover: This book.... brings to life the sights, sounds, and smells of a bygone age through the words of writers for whom those times were a real­ity. Irene describes her childhood and youth in the village of Rowley. Written originally for her family as "Milestones of Memory" she set out to record a place and life­ style that would otherwise be lost forever. In so doing, a vivid picture emerges of people and pass times; through Christmas and bonfire night, Rowley Wake and the chapel the Rowley of the 1920s is brought back to life.

The book is in excellent overall condition. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed and a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
